After finishing a huge sewing project, it can be hard to force yourself to use craft room ideas to keep your space extra organized. Big projects can be exhausting and it can be tempting to pile things up and leave the organizing for later. Resist that urge! If you want to keep sewing and get your crafting zen in order, arrange your fabric in a way that will keep you sewing. Plus, why would you hide all those lovely patterns? If you find a great place to store it, the fabric can be its very own decoration. Use folding and rolling techniques to store your fabric in a way that it is easily accessible. If you keep your fabric stacked neatly, you will not have to iron it before starting a new project. Learn how to organize and display your fabric stash with these craft room ideas in our Sewing Tips and Tricks Tuesday: Roll or fold your fabric stash!
Just like folding and storing your clothes, there is no right or wrong way to keep your stash tucked in tight. You can put it in drawers or you can roll it up and display it. No matter what you decide to do, just make sure that you store it in a way that keeps the fabric safe! Consider using one of these excellent craft room ideas for inspiration!
